. another big story we're following tonight, a home-grown terror plot busted by the fbi. five men under arrest accused of trying to blow up a bridge over a major national park near cleveland. fox 5s tom fitzgerald is following the story for us does. the fbi think this is related to the anniversary of osama bin
5:11 pm
laden? >> at this point, they saying no, shape. from what they detailed, they part a self-described anaist group with no known ties to internationalitism and like the plots in our area, the fbi appears to have uncovered the plan. the fbi said the target was a bridge over the cuyahoga valley national park and that is in brecksville, ohio, about 15 miles south of cleveland. authorities say the five men under arrest are self-described anarchists and, starting in october, the fbi infiltrated their group. they say the public was never in any danger when the suspect placed what they thought were c- 4 explosives at the bias of the bridge on monday. in fact, those were duds provided to the suspects by federal authorities. >> last night, the coconspirators placed the two i.d.s at the base of the concrete -- for this
5:12 pm
brecksville-northfield high- level bridge and attempted to remotely detonate the devices from the location that they deemed safe and one that was possibly giving them an alibi. all sides coconspirators were taken into custody last night with the fbi and after they attempted to remotely detonate the inner devices. >> we want to bring in virginia's congressman connelly. good evening congress moment. >> good evening, tom. >> congressman, how much of a problem is the home-grown terrorists opposed to the foreign threats we're familiar with? >> i don't know that they're more of a problem than they have been. it's important to put this in context. the good news, the fbi got them, they got them from the beginning and they were able to thwart what would have been a terrible terrorist incident. sadly, we have had home-grown terrorism in this country for a long time. it's sadly a long tradition.
5:13 pm
and so, we just need to stay vigilant and i think that is the lesson from this latest incident. >> and we don't have to look back too far in february. a man was arrested and charged with plotting to blow up the u.s. capitol. in october of 2010, another man in virginia was arrested and trying to plot against metro. before you were in congress, you were familiar with the regional efforts that go into preventing terrorism here in the national capital area. how large of an effort is this and how good has the fbi gotten in infiltrating the groups? >> i think the fbi did some really first-class professional work here. here in the nation's capitol, since the tragedy of 9/11, the cooperation in the nation and with the fbi and other adjuncts to the federal government has grown exponentially and that is a reassuring message for the citizens. again, we're going to be a
5:14 pm
target and can never afford to lay back and say the deal is done. >> and as we look at the anniversary new, the death of osama bin laden. are there areas the united states needs to do a better job in as far as taking the fight against terrorism both domestically and overseas that we have not moved into just yet? >> and the strength is on the technological side. what we have to always work at is that human intelligence. there is no substitute for having reliable source of information that speak the language fluently, can imbed themselves inside the groups and can give us reliable confidence. >> thank you for joining us tonight. >> thank you. >> and. it was a move they thought they had to make during tough financial times. the d.c. council voted to furlough most city workers for four days and then the mayor
5:15 pm
proposed the planta pa back. and matt ackland has more. >> reporter: esemployees like the idea of getting the four days of pay and that would cost the city $22 million. today, the council couldn't come to an agreement and the measure failed. a compromise is offered to -- when the city would get a clearer picture. some said no to four days now when they need the money in other places. >> and no one is suggest anyone likes the notion of furloughs. i will remind them what we didn't do this in -- in is this district and that is sack employees on a large scale. >> reporter: also, new developments having to do with the formation of the ethics board. the council member is frustrated over how long it's taking mayor gray to come up with a list of nominees for
5:16 pm
that and she gave in and pulled back on emergency situation to allow council to pick one of the nominees itself. >> and i would give them another 30 days if you're frustrated with the timeframe here? >> the sense of the council they wanted 30 more days and so, you know, i will work with my colleagues. >> and she said she didn't have the votes and agreed to give the neighbor another month and will bring her legislation up again. if she doesn't have a list of nominees, the mayor's office said the list is coming soon and that is just taking more time. there is a code. the change follows the recent prostitution scandal in colombia. 100 agents will undergo ethics training this week at johns hopkins university. dr. christopher draesbak is one of the professors who will be teaching the agents. i hope i said your name
5:17 pm
correct. >> close enough. >> originally, we know 20 agents were signed up for this course and now 100 will take part in the two-day program. what sorts of topics will you talk about? >> we'll talk about moral theory in general and how to use them as tools in moral decision making. >> and let me ask you. shouldn't some of these things be common sense? we're talking about adults, not teenagers and not college students. >> yes. they should be common sense. and the assumption in the course such as the one we will offer this week is that the participants are ethical people. the question is what is available to help us over the tough cases and how to meet the kinds of cases that have been in the news? >> let's relate this back to the most recent case, of course, the scandal with the prostitution scandal in colombia. specifically, what sort of things will you tell the secret
5:18 pm
service agents? what will you talk to them about? >> i don't know that i'll be telling them much at all. i'm not going in to wag my finger. we'll have a conversation of the strength of the secret service and how to leverage those strengths toward developing a strategic plan for ethics so those things may not happen in the future and people might be in a better position than today to respond to the problems should they happen. >> many professions require the employees to sign an ethics or morals clause. what about the secret service? should they have something like that in their contracts? >> well, to be honest with you, i don't know whether they do sign something specifically about that but every agency i know of takes a note that includes to maintain integrity.
5:19 pm
you know perhaps the mot so worthy of trust and confidence and certainly everybody i met buys into that motto, takes it seriously. >> we hope that they will take your two-day course seriously. doctor, thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you. and we went from february, march, june and july. >> yeah. >> and i am not complaining at all. it's too ho. we can't complain. it's nice out there. >> a little humidity and we can handle it. >> and how are we looking tonight, gary? >> pretty good and staying mild and we will continue, i would say, warm for the better part of the evening and that is until the sun sets. as you might expect, we're into the 80s and, laura, i think, was mentioning the humidity and
